    During a 34 hour reset at any given truckstop am I required to log in and out of sleeper birth? Can I just go off duty at the start of it and stay off duty until I am ready to go again after the reset?

    Maybe . But is changing status or doing anything in your logbook not considered part of your job ?

    Another question is...

    If you must physically be in the sleeper birth to log sleeper birth, what if you can’t reach your elog from the sleeper birth?

    I need a beer.
